the very white, very french christmas

by Sharon Santoni
  greetings to you all for this pre-christmas weekend
this is very nearly my last post before our christmas celebrations

 I would like to tell you that the house is calm, filled only with the sound of children humming happy songs, the fire crackling and the sweet perfume of festive baking in the kitchen, ….




unfortunately that is so far from the truth
 that I hate to even to talk about it …hmmm..
‘headless chicken’ would be the most accurate description 
of this xmas blogger, but hey ho, c’est la vie …
we’ll get there in the end[blank]
[blank] so today, I bring you images from many talented 
French blogs, who are making this christmas very 
white and very creative, 
girls such as  
 [blank]I have found inspiration in these pictures, as well 
as many others that I’ve pinned to my Noël page,[blank]
[blank]I hope they give you some great ideas too

à demain mes amis
and happy preparations

Gorgeous images, Sharon – thanks for sharing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like she is walking around like a chook without his head…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family – it's been a pleasure to have been invited into your home and your life this past year.

I'm just reading a very few of my favourite blogs before scurrying around with my final Christmas preparations.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas, filled with love, joy, hope and peace. Joyeux Noel!

I was feeling so bad about sitting on my laptop wasting time when I should be wrapping presents & doing several other things for Christmas until I got to "headless chicken"! I couldn't stop laughing, lol. The only thing I've accomplished so far is getting the several boxes of wrapping articles down from the garage loft. I'm still in recovery mode from our large holiday party last Saturday night, which everyone wants me to do again next year, yikes!…give me some breathing space please!! I'm in a happy mood none the less because today is my birthday, but I'm keeping it low-key with the celebrating. Looking out my window at a dull brown yard sure doesn't bring thoughts of Christmas cheer, but your pictures on today's post definitely help. I want to let you know how much I truly enjoy reading your blog and how much I enjoyed visiting your home this fall. It was an experience I would love to repeat. Happy Holidays & a Happy New Year to you and your wonderful family!

I too am racing around, as we say in Australia, "like a chook with it's head cut off!" Good luck, and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Louise

It always comes together in the end…I had my preChristmas meltdown on Thursday…you're not alone in the "headless chicken" department!

I am here to tell you that blog commenting is one of the most powerful traffic generation methods around. I believe blog commenting has taken over what traditional article marketing used to be.
